Keyboard Filter Driver

皆様、楽しいデバッグライフをお送りしておりますでしょうか! WDK サポートチームのI沢でございます。 今月も私がお送りしたいと思いますが、これまでのようなツール紹介ではございません! 今回は、キーボードフィルタドライバにつきまして、ご紹介したいと思います。 私はキーボードフィルタドライバと聞くだけで、馬鹿なことをやったな…と思いだすことがあります。 当時、まだ若かった私はキーボードフィルタドライバを実装していたのですが、手軽にいろいろできたので、"Ctrl + Alt + Del" の同時押しを抑制して強制終了できなくしてみたらどうなるだろう…?と対象のキーを抑制したドライバを検証用の PC ではなく作業用の PC にインストールしてしまいました。 オチは想像できるかと思いますが、それはもう見事に Windows にログインできなくなりました!
